SXSW Day One + Preview

It’s pretty chic to be anti-SXSW in North Texas. We at D FrontRow are not the hating sort, and we are down here having the time of our young (and also middle-aged) lives. We have already had one memorable day that climaxed with seeing Iggy Pop rushed away Hollywood-style in a black SUV, and saw Sky Ferreira put on a brave performance before an adoring crowd, despite losing her voice. You’ll also see some photos of the Specials and Ghostface, and even a photo from a Hipstamatic-sponsored brunch! Here are a few highlights from what we’ve seen so far, which act as a preview of our upcoming coverage.
